The Hobbit and the frame rate

Postby JewJitsu » 14 Dec 2012, 19:23

Has anyone seen The Hobbit yet and was it at 48fps?

I thought the film was alright (nothing spectacular) but the highlight for me was the scenes with Gollum and the amazing CGI but I wasn't a fan of the frame rate.

I know you can see it at the old rate but if 48fps is meant to be the future of cinema then count me out. To me the film seemed too slick and reminded me a lot of playing CoD
There's a feeling I get when I look to the west

I went to see it at normal 24fps. I think 48fps is only at selected cinemas not all Hobbit shows are 48fps. I did hear 48fps is not the best hence I just went the normal one. I was also told the 3D isn't great and doesn't enhance the film at all.

I had hoped at 48fps the f**king film would've been a decent 90 minutes; instead of a 3 hour, one third of a trilogy, milk festival.

Yeah its a bit greedy that they're doing 3 films from one small book. As for the 3D it wasn't too bad I think it added a bit when they were underground fighting the Goblins

If 48fps is the speed of telly programmes, then does that mean the DVD/Blu-Ray version will be in 48FPS? I know only limited cinemas had it, but that's just because films are 24 and so not many cinemas have the equipment for high frame rate, but tellys can run that fine.

What's been the overall thoughts on it then, for critics etc? Love or hate?

Thoughts on the film itself or all this frame rate shite? For the film itself, it's awesome. For the frame rate, I honestly don't know. I thought it looked cool but loads of people on the internet are complaining about it.

I didn't see any difference, although my friend said it was strange and he didn't like it.
Maybe, I didn't feel anything because of my glasses, I have really bad eyes.
